  • This is a small museum packed with interesting and intriguing items. There were many things here we did not see in any other museums in Alaska. Could have spent more time here.

  • A very unique experience. For those on a cruise this is worth the walk to see. Many cool artifacts with an interesting back story to the building. Lots of documented history and the lady at the front desk was very knowledgeable.
  • Worth a visit 💞 and second visit. I can't cover and or remember so many things in one time. So much of information especially for kids.
  • Worth the walk to see. Docents were knowledgeable and more than willing to share. As always there are to many pieces to exhibit. Display cabinets include drawers you can explore with many additional pieces. Well laid out
  • The museum has a very good collection of Alaskan native Americans. This includes the local Tlingkit (sp.?) as well as Aleut, Inuit, and Athabascan tribes.
  • amazing collection the room is small, but allow 3 hrs, at least twice...
